This Cathedral is definitely worth visiting while in Kiev. It is absolutely gorgeous inside and has a cozy and a quite territory to enjoy peace and reflect. This is not a touristy place as people genuinely come here to worship. Great experience! No photos inside...More

This is another one of the must see cathedrals in Kiev. If you visit St. Sophia’s cathedral, you will be able to see this one from the bell tower. It is a quick visit and no entrance fee.

What a beautiful place to visit. My visit to Kiev would have not been as meaningful had I not seen this.

Very picturesque, especially in the snow. Interior is beautiful as well. Lots of great religions art. Visit weekdays when there aren't many tourists.

I came here during a free walking tour and was pleased we did as it was so beautiful! Inside is very ornate and highly decorated. I recommend a visit if you're in Kiev. But you can't take photos, which isn't so much fun.

you cannot visit Kiev without seeing this beautiful cathedral. Very central and easy to get to. The mosaics on the inside are as beautiful as the outside of this church.
